@talibear:  I think what she means is if you do decide to wear flats, then there is a higher chance that you might walk on your dress and maybe end up ripping it or tripping on your dress. I absolutely have to wear heals with my “FULL” ballgown otherwise I will be walking on it all day…I hope this helps.

I can understand why you pick your shoe….I’m big on comfort too! πŸ™‚ However, I can’t wear flats since I am too short (5’3) so I will be wearing shoes around 4inches tall. Maybe the seamstress suggested a bit of a heel so the dress falls correctly (nice and smoothe) rather than gathering at the bottom.

I’ve never heard of that, but if I had to speculate I would think she’s talking about how people carry themselves differently in heels.  I love your flats though!

LOVE the flats! πŸ™‚ I’m a heel/wedge girl too, but also into comfort.  I just know that regardless of any factor, I will be barefoot (or in flats) in my dress by dancing time. Would it be possible to do a slight heel (like maybe 2″) for the ceremony and then wear flats to follow? I understand you’re losing 2″ then from alterations, but would the bustle help that?  I have no idea, I’m just throwing out an option?  You wouldn’t be losing a ton of height, right?

@talibear: It depends how much she is hemming. For my Sweet 15’s, I had a ballgown and it was pretty poufy. The dress had to be hemmed and the seamstress even asked me how tall my heels would be which was a small heel..maybe no more than 3. She cut the right amount because the dress fell as it should it was smooth at the bottom. It did not bunch up nor was a dragging the dress.

Maybe your seamstress did know you were planning on wearing flats and may think that the length she may have hemmed won’t allow the dress to fall as it should or she may fear your dress will drag with flats on. Best bet is to give your seamstress a call to double check on what she meant.

I wore 4 inch heels to my ceremony and immediately switched to Tom’s for the receptions. I wish I would have just stuck with the flats the whole time, but I definitely agree that you carry yourself a little different with heels than with flats. However, it comes down to you and what you are comfortable with!

I wore flats – it was a mermaid dress but extra poofy with tulle on the bottom… and I had no problem… Not sure what she means

@talibear:  Yes! I enjoy wearing heels, but my knees have the tendency to buckle unexpectedly… I did NOT want that happening on my wedding day! And, since there’s only about a 5 inch difference between my Darling Husband and I, I didn’t want to be much taller… I like the look with a height difference πŸ™‚

I would suspect your seamstress might be referring how women stand differently in heels: more curve in low back, pelvis tilted forward: so bum is more “up” and chest a little more “out”.
